Mukarji in unity call to address poverty

Christian Aid chief executive Daleep Mukarji has called for the creation of a "global movement of solidarity" encompassing NGOs, faith-based organisations, trade unions, and environmental groups, dedicated to improving conditions for the world's poor.

Writing in Third Sector, Mukarji argues that while NGOs are already working together, to have real impact, "a wider group of movements, networks and agencies have to come together". He suggests the Trade Justice Movement, a 50-strong coalition, could be a model for the new movement.

The call was backed by Friends of the Earth's chief executive Tony Juniper.

"If there is to be any kind of acceptable future for the world, then we must emerge as a more cohesive and united force," he said.
